As a result of this amendment, the following positions will be open for election at the AGM:
- Secretary & Membership Secretary
- Postgraduate Representative

Other positions may become vacant as a result of these elections. If you are interested in serving on the Committee you must be a fully paid-up member of the Association before submitting your nomination. If you would like to nominate another member of the Association for any of these positions, you must have their written permission to do so.
Notice of nominations received will be posted on the IAAS website, as well as at the conference venue. Should more than one nomination be received for any position, an election will be held during the AGM. Only members present at the AGM will be able to vote.
